Here’s a taste of what’s on tap today at the Beard House.
Bistro Elegance, 7:00 P.M.
Jordan and Alice Lloyd, Bartlett Pear Inn, Easton, MD
Jordan Lloyd, who cut his teeth at Per Se and Citronelle, now steers the kitchen at Bartlett Pear Inn, an 18th-century property that promotes Chesapeake Bay cuisine. Together with his wife, who oversees all things business, Lloyd is bringing a taste of what has made their inn a critic and community favorite.
